Judge Halyburton, of the C. S. Circuit Court, has been engaged two days in hearing a cause which will prove of interest to all who have put substitutes in the field. Mr. Robertson, it seems, employed John Murphy, a non-conscript, and had him regularly received and mustered in as a substitute.--Some time after said Murphy was claimed as a deserter from some regiment, and taken possession of by the officers of that regiment, he denying that be was a deserter.--Twelve months after Robinson was conscripted because his substitute had been thus claimed, though no proof was shown that Murphy was a deserter. Robinson thereupon sued out a writ of habeas corpus, and Judge Halyburton is to decide whether R. is liable to service under the circumstances above stated. His opinion is looked to with great interest.

Almost a Dad. --On Wednesday last the day police arrested Dr. William H. Robertson, of Petersburg, and Dr. W. O. McCorkle, of Tennessee, charged with being about to engage in a duel, in violation of the laws of this Commonwealth. Yesterday morning the parties were before the Major, and each held to bail to keep the peace in the sum of $1,500. The parties were prisoners at Fort McHenry, where a difficulty occurred between them, which they determined to settle as soon as they were liberatediberated. Arriving here on the flag-of-truce boat on Tuesday morning, Dr. Robertson soon after sent a challenge, which was accepted by Dr. McCorkle, and the duel would have taken place on Wednesday morning but for the serious indisposition of Dr. McC.'s second. In the course of the day the acquaintances of the parties got wind of the pending hostilities, and, to prevent the effusion of blood, called in the officers of the law to their aid-- "Blessed is the peace maker," saith the good book.
